Simply Believe

Simply believe in your salvation: Some live in fear for years over the thought of loosing their salvation. This fear comes because we have a difficult time believing God would love us and save us even though we sin against Him. We try to compensate by being good, when we fail we feel we do not deserve Heaven.

John 3:16 states “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 14:1-3 states “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

Simply believe in God’s forgiveness: After accepting God’s wonderful forgiveness for sin and we once more sin against Him, we sometimes can doubt God will really forgive us over and over again.

Psalm 86:5 “For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.”

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Simply believe He will provide: Sometimes the circumstances of life cause us to desire to have more money to ensure financial security. We can take it to the point that we we are consumed with worry over the matter. When we have grown up with very little, or have found ourself in a situation that money was needed to escape, we can vow never to be found in that position again, but God, wants to provide for you.

Luke 12:29-31 “ And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Matthew 6:26 26 “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”

Simply believe Jesus understands your pain: Hebrews 4:15-16 15 “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

In Jesus’ life He knew what it was like to be misunderstood, betrayed, beaten, mocked, tortured, killed and many other pains.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

Simply believe that God is not finished with you yet: With each new season of life brings the question, “Now what?” When God changes the circumstances of your life it is important that you don’t give up and think there is nothing left to do for God. God wants us to work forHim until He returns.

John 15:8 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
